So here is a song near and dear to my heart, because it has references to the original 6th century poem that first told the story of Mu Lan. The song comes from Zhao Wei’s movie Mulan in 2009. When I was six, my grandmother made me memorize over sixty ancient Chinese poems and I’ve forgotten most of them now. All except Mu Lan Ci, roughly translated as the Ballad of Mulan, which originated from 6th Century BC. So this song is near and dear to my heart. Translation of Song and explanations below.
